As part of the OneHealth interventions road-map to set up an education platform, GCRF-OneHealth members drafted inputs for an e-learning course which will avail the material to an online audience for free.
On 6-7 Nov, our Grenada team from SGU Health Department held a virtual public health international conference in which the OneHealth project was introduced to the audience in a pre-conference segment. Following this and in line with the network’s roadmap, the plan was developed to offer a Free Open Access Online Course titled One Health: Making an Impact Through Community Led Interventions.
The course is aimed to support the exchange of knowledge, experience, ideas and capacity building among academic and non-academic stakeholders and develop solutions on how to achieve the triple health and environment co-benefits of access to clean water, a basic human right, healthy and productive soils and delivery of safe and nutritious foods.

About the Course:
Engaging with a range of stakeholders from different backgrounds and varying incentives is challenging in any context. Especially when building long-term, sustainable environmental change. Learn from practitioners across communities, academia, industry and government who are tackling some of our biggest environmental challenges and how they’ve aligned to create win-win solutions. This course is being offered by St. George’s University in cooperation with the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and its Health, Polluted Water and Soils Network in Jamaica, Grenada, Kenya and Scotland. Students in the 4-week course will interact with SGU’s faculty and GCRF partners to discuss issues, experiences, interventions, and benefits of sustainable community interventions towards water security and safety through examples and experiences from communities around the world.
